Reporting Your Wages - PFL
The income types shown below must be reported to the Employment Development Deparment (EDD), even though they may not always affect your benefits. Failure to report your income or that you have returned to work could result in an overpayment, penalties, and a false statement disqualification.
Report the following wages to the EDD:
- Sick leave pay
- Paid time off
- Self-employment income
- Military pay
- Wages, including modified duty wages
- Part-time work income
- Workers’ compensation benefits
- Insurance settlements
- Holiday pay
In addition, your benefits may be reduced because of a prior Unemployment Insurance, Paid Family Leave (PFL), or Disability Insurance overpayment or for delinquent court-ordered child or spousal support payments.
How Do You Report Wages or Work Status?
You will report any wages on your initial claim form when you file your claim. During your claim, if you receive any of the forms listed below, you must complete and return them to the EDD online or by mail to avoid possible overpayments, penalties, false statement disqualifications, or a stop to your benefit payments.
You may report wages or that you’ve returned to work on the follow forms:
- Continued Claim Certification for Paid Family Leave Benefits (DE 2580GF) If you reported intermittent leave or continued work on your claim form, you will receive the Continued Claim Certification for Paid Family Leave Benefits (DE 2580GF) to certify to the days you have worked during your claim. If you do not return the DE 2580GF to the EDD, your benefits will stop
- A Notice of Final Payment (DE 2525XF) will be issued when your PFL claim indicates that you are now ready to return to work. With your final payment, you will receive a Paid Family Leave (PFL) Supplemental Claim Certification (DE 2525XFA) enclosed with the DE 2525XF.
- If you need to continue providing care for a family member select the box that applies to your claim on the PFL Claimant’s Certification section of the DE 2525XFA. You must have the care recipient’s physician/practitioner also complete the Physician’s Supplementary Certificate section of the DE 2525XFA and return to the EDD.
- If you wish to continue bonding with a child, select the box that applies to your claim on the PFL Claimant’s Certification section of the DE 2525XFA and return to the EDD. The “Physician’s Supplementary Certificate” is not required for bonding claims.
To submit any of the forms stated above by mail, complete the form and mail to the EDD using the self-addressed envelope provided.
If you are eligible for benefits, allow 10 business days to process your payment after the EDD receives the form.
